Tony nominee and True Colors artistic director Kenny Leon (The Mountaintop, Stick Fly) directs the comedy based on William Rose's 1967 screenplay that runs July 10-29.
Rashad (Raisin in the Sun, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) stars as Mary Prentice with Kittles ("Miracle at St. Ana," "Sons of Anarchy") as Doctor John Prentice. Leon previously directed Rashad in Broadway's Gem of the Ocean and A Raisin in the Sun, as well as the upcoming Lifetime Television remake of Steel Magnolias.

Here's how the classic comedy is billed: "Following a life-altering romance, Joey Drayton brings her fiancé, Dr. John Prentice, home to San Francisco to meet her affluent parents. Their liberal persuasions are put to the test when they find out their daughter's fiancé, while an ideal choice – a handsome, wealthy, brilliant, internationally-renown doctor from a respectable family – is also African-American."
